temperature. and when you pile on the humidity, it's a huge difference maker. the big question people have is, when is this going to end? when can we expect some relief? the changes are going to come. we're going to see a lot of the temperatures begin to revert back to where they should be this time of year, into the 70s, the 80s, and some places in the 90s. but that's going to feel better than what you're going to get today. 99 will be your high, expected in new york today. 98 in boston. 102 in our nation's capital. 90s in chicago, back into kansas city, 100 in dallas. and the heat continues into the front range of rockies, the central rockies, and even back to the great basin. the big changes we're going to see, from the highs in the 100s and upper 90s, will come from the big dome of high pressure we've had, that's been over at least half the nation. we'll see this big ridge begin to break down. and when it breaks down, it will create a void, and then a frontal boundary will replace it. it's not going to be frigid, but it will take an edge off that heat in places like boston, chicago, and p
economic soundness to this country. that take as big deal. a lot of pain. democrats are upset the president talked about pain on their side of the ail and republicans are saying no way will we give tax relief to middle income americans. they want to continue tax relief to the wealthy. everyone agrees a number around $4 trillion will make a serious debt on our deficit. it will send a statement to the world that the u.s. has gotten ahold of their fiscal problems and they are moving forward. it will give confidence to the american people that we can move forward to bring economic soundness. that's the president's commitment. >> 6:00 on the east coast. welcome to "morning joe." look at that nice live look at times square. joe is looking spify today. he went shopping. it is monday, july 11th. >> i don't know what that means. >> we have msnbc -- well, yes. this is unusual. we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle, john heilemann. what's so funny? >> yeah, what's so funny? i don't get it. he's back. >> we can't get him to leave. we have "morning joe" economic analyst steve rattner and in washington
fitsity still. there's no legislative language. it looks like what could be a pretty big tax increase. the spending cuts i think are highly uncertain. it instructs the various committees of the senate and the house to come up with these spending cuts. we have no assurance that they will do that. we have no idea how they'll do that. then we asked the senate to vote on that. all of which suggests to me there are a number of ways in which this could fall apart. i give these guys all the credit in the world for really struggling and trying to make some progress on a tough issue. there's no assurance that it results in an outcome. if we can't agree on spending cuts now, why should we suppose at the end of this process which after all has been available to us for two years the senate won't even pass a budget, why we think that this will result in real spending cuts is not clear to me. >> the other dynamic here is the mcconnell-reid proposal. that is going to get to the floor at some point. now the idea of being that the gang of six proposal is too late to be scored by cbo to really be put i
14% in taxes and corporations pay 0%, and you raise more, you can have us a big deal here. >> they're still drawing lines in the sand that seem insurmountable with weeks to go before the august 2 deadline, congressional leaders are heading back to the white house today for yet another meeting to reach a deal on raising the country's debt ceiling. officials familiar with the negotiations say majority leader eric cantor dominated yesterday's meeting. cantor laid out what was agreed upon in the deficit reduction talks led by vice president biden, specifically $2 trillion in cuts in the next decade. the figure includes $1 trillion in discretionary spending. $200 billion in medicare and medicaid. and $200 billion to $300 billion on saved interest in the debt. >> so the military -- the military, i guess, comes in in the mandatory discretionary spending. >> military. >> sources familiar with the talks add that after the presentation president obama said the two sides might be able to reach consensus on roughly $1 pp 7 trillion. but there are still some issues to resolve. at one point in t
find himself in the unemployment line. it's that big of an issue. new polling in four key swing states tell the story. over 50% of voters in ohio, missouri and montana say that they will be less likely to vote for president obama if he makes any cuts. that's any cuts to medicare/medicaid benefits. the same holds true if the president signs off on any deal that cuts social security. president obama will never win reelection if he loses 50% of the voters in a state like ohio. now, there is really good reason -- no good reason anywhere to put entitlement cuts on the table with numbers like this. this is mind-boggling to the democratic caucus right now. i know, i spoke to a dozen of them tonight at a function here in washington. republicans. they will never take it as a tried-off for raising taxes on the rich. eric canter made that crystal clear this morning. >> i can tell you one thing, we are united as republicans to say now is not the time to raise taxes. i have talked with the speaker. he is not for increase in taxes. >> we are not for any net new revenues right now. what we want to fo
this thing started last sunday. as you say, the president has said he wants this big deal but this thing broke up today, the meeting ended with the president telling these leader toss go back to their members and ask them what do they think can pass and then report back to the president with something that they believe can pass by this saturday morning. they're not even having a meeting tomorrow. now, despite all that i am told by my sources that there's not a lot of optimism that this particular negotiating process here at the white house is going to actually end up leading to the real deal, and a lot of effort and attention is now turning to a different process that's happening in the u.s. senate and another alternate deal that's being worked out between the two senate leaders that could instead end up raising the debt ceiling. a lot of hope is centered there, anderson. >> basically what is that deal? what is that negotiation based on? that's harry reid and mitch mcconnell. >> it's a little complicated but it would effectively raise the debt ceiling which would allow for spending cuts
for john boehner, i think boehner was exactly right, his instincts were let's get a big deal, the problem is he couldn't sell it to his caucus dominated by tea party who consider themselves patriots, but this -- >> six months ago you heard bill talking about it with stuart varney, said we shouldn't be raising taxes in a down economy. andrea. >> he's absolutely right. these crazy tea partiers that bob loves to blast every chance he gets have the same position that president obama essentially had in 2006 when he said we shouldn't vote to raise the debt ceiling and if we did it would be irresponsible so the president, big political issues on the line but i agree with bob in one respect, john boehner has real trouble within his conference. there are members of the gop caucus that have come out and said we're not voting for any kind of deal as long as it includes raising the debt ceiling so boehner does have to work with democrats. big challenges on both sides. heather: democrats bob certainly have a problem, a lot of them are saying no cuts to social security, no cuts to medicare, no cuts to
morning steve and alison big hello welcome back. >> thank you tuck. i experienced dry heat i will talk about it later in the show. >> we had something from another world over the weekend temperatures a little better today i want to stress, low 90s decent chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms could use those this is generally a good news monday forecast let's look at our satellite radar, again we will start with radar gain showers off to the south and east, heavy rain in spots across southern maryland during the overnight hours they had a flash flood warning, but you can see here in the immediate washington area, fairly quiet conditions there is a lot of haze and humidity in the atmosphere. temperature not comfortable, regan national, 81 degrees. 76 dulles, 75 at the naval air station and 75 hagueers town. partly sunny condition, thunderstorms developing later, highs upper 80s low 90s again our best chance of rain this week let's hope we get a little bit before sunshine returns tomorrow more details in the forecast in a coupling minutes lauren. >>> we are still dealing with two
been seen as the party of big spending in government. right now, voters are in a position where they want to see less spending. one gets down to specifics, they are more on the side of democrats. the paul ryan plan is very unpopular but the measures the democrats propose like increasing taxes on the wealthy and ending subsidies for corporations is very popular the democrats need to reach a credibility threshold on fiscal issues. they need to be willing to say that we need more government accountability. if they can agree to a down payment and get a boat on the record of cutting spending, it helps them reach that far. they want to move to a larger debate where the public is on their side about priorities and what is the next step. they want to from that republicans want to eliminate medicare for those under 55. they can cut some things that will affect the middle class since seniors but we want to end the subsidies for oil companies and the jets owners. if they can get bear rather than debate about cutting spending more or less, going into 2012, there will be a good position. hos
feeling. >> i can't wait to see you in new york. start that race together and give you a big hug at the finish line. >> sounds good. can't wait to see you. >> if you want to follow along with me or any members of the six-pack, logon to cnn.com/sanjay. thanks for being with us this morning. time now to get you back into the cnn newsroom for a check of our big stories. >>> this from the cnn center in atlanta, georgia, this is your saturday morning, k a.m. eastern time and i'm t.j. holmes. two developing stories. first the president summoning congressional leaders back to the white house for a saturday morning conference. this comes the day after the house speaker, john boehner walked out on debt talks. the president calling them right back. >>> also the developing story out of norway where at least 91 people have been killed in two separate attacks in norway. police there say these two attacks are, in fact, linked. still a developing story. we'll have the very latest for you live in just a moment. we need to begin in washington, d.c. with that looming deadline on the nation's debt.
ahead with a big deal maybe triggered in or staged later? >> i heard what the president said. i don't think business itself is bothered by the debt ceiling deal or no deal. i think what they may be bothered by is the uncertainty surrounding future tax regime that's going to be required to deal with these deficits. however, factoring into the negotiations what maybe somewhat helpful to the president in a slew of numbers that by and large are totally unhelpful is we're seeing the near term effects of cutting back in government spending. it cost jobs. not just in the government sector, but also in knock on private sector jobs as well. >> steve liesman with all the numbers and what that mean. thank you so much. good to see you, steve. republicans using the bad jobs report to scuttle any new taxes in a budget deal. joining me now virginia democratic senator mark warner a key member of the so-called gang of slight, slightly shrunk to five. still hoping senators working for months on ways to reduce the deficit. your quick reaction to the jobs report first and how it will effect the negotia
is a big point of concern here. nancy pelosi was very adamant yesterday, saying that the republican caucus would not accept any deal that would cut medicare, cut social security. and remember, they're most likely going to need democratic votes to get this across the finish line because we're expecting any type of deal to extend the nation's debt limit will get a lot of republican defection. >> we just got the two-minute warning. we saw some activity from one of the staffers coming out to put president obama's notes at that podium. so i want to keep you with me right now to talk about what can we expect with the president telling everyone they need to stay in town, not go home, there's going to be work over the weekend, and that they're going to be in session next week trying to hammer this out? >> they're going to be in session next week. and we also got word the house will stay in session july 18th. essentially what you're seeing now, thomas, is some of it's political show, obviously, when people have to work on sunday that sends a message to the american people, you're having your day of

have a big jump in revenue. obama has been saying let's thai the bush tax cuts are going to lapse and we are going to extend the ones for the middle class. republicans are afraid to let him do that up front. it would kill momentum for a tax reform. >> but, but, but why just get rid of the bush tax cuts. if they are so awful, why not get rid of all of them. get rid of all of them for everybody. if tax cuts are the worst thing ever, the bush tax cuts, get rid of the bush tax cuts for everybody and raise billions in revenue. >> right. i think we could probably figure it out sitting around the table. i don't think it's that difficult. they are locked in in political terms. it's a much different issue to them. you can make rational compromises and deals here. the problem is, how do they do it. what's happening is they are at the point where they realize the consequences. at some point, they realize they have to do something other than hold the ground saying this is it. we're not going to change anything. we are at that point and we have little time to work with. >> howard dean, look wh
wasn't serious about what is being called "the big deficit reduction deal." the three, to $3.5 trillion measure over ten years. officials here, i believe, would tell you that the issue is the tax revenue that the president says has to be a part of the package to keep it from being unfair to to make deficit reduction too big a burden on social security and medicare and other government programs. the president will come out here, i presume, and tell lawmakers he wants them to get a deal. because of course, what we are looking at is the august 2 deadline for raising the nation's debt ceiling. and there is no deficit reduction deal by then, we could presumably have a default, unless lawmakers agree to raise the debt ceiling without a deficit reduction agreement. something that republicans are reluctant to do. >> chris: we have been getting reporting from the house producer chad pegram, wendell, and he indicates one of the hold-up apparently is the gang of six, the six bipartisan, three republican, three democratic senators came out with their report this week which had revenue about $1 tril
it could be a big day for our whole entire country. >> and the news is whether we've got a deal or not. shortly after ten o'clock last night. harry reid said you know, i was going to have everybody show up in the mid feel the night and take a vote at 1 a.m. and he received word from the white house that apparently, the white house and this really hacks him off, you know, because it kind of bypasses him, and former speaker pelosi, dealing directly with mitch mcconnell, joe biden 6789 it sounds like they've got a deal, and close to a deal and some of of the frame work as well to talk about it. >> yeah, it looks like it's been going back and forth and take a look, it looks like debt ceiling increase, 1.2 trillion to 2.4 last night last through the night and living in my office, as high as 2.8 trillion dollars in debt ceiling increases, spending cuts have to be about the same amount commensurate. >> dollar for dollar. >> at least if not more. >> and guys, there's a little bit of wrangling whether or not that balanced budget amendment that john boehner needed so badly to get the house to vo
. the big question today is, will they be looking at that medium-sized deal and will they have enough details to get something done? there is not a lot of certainty that they can cut that big deal. the president has said he cannot cut a short-term deal. they have to have a deal. there is a lot of uncertainty right now. it is all very unstable, very much up in the air. everybody is playing for their negotiating position right now. the president is using the leverage he has to keep up as much pressure as he can. >> jessica, i am sure you will be answering that question from that. >> john king is here. it is interesting. the president is going to be in the briefing room. he is out of the east room where there would be a dramatic announcement. this is just sort of a surprise in the middle of these tough negotiations. he has decided to go public to try to put pressure on us. >> i am not surprised. i find it interesting that before they go pack back to mee 2:00 in the afternoon, he is coming out of here to talk about the state of play. the president can go directly to the american people an
. in fact murdock's empire is so big, i, myself, i remember when -- >> my question to you, mr. mcmullen, if we can stick to this -- because i know that you and hue grant -- >> i was by murdock. again, little sympathy for stars who take the money for a 20th century fox picture. >> mr. mcmullen can you hear me? >> analyzing their private life, it hasn't caused change. this week, laughingly, but when hugh grant turned me over in the same way that i had -- >> producers, can we stop this, please? yes, i would like him to be able to hear me, so we're going to bring him back after the break, because he's not answering my questions, that's paul mcmillan who's a former news of the world reporter, he says that that type of behavior has been condoned and encouraged at his newspaper and others. when we can hear me we'll bring him back right after the break. >>> a kentucky woman is told to stop speaking in court and goes after the judge, it's all caught on camera, you're going to see how it all played out. and if you haven't heard of southern california's one of the major highways is shut down
.5 trillion does not make any of the big issues go away. sooner or later republicans are going to have to swallow some revenue increases. host: what is the purpose of today's news conference from the president? caller: the purpose for the president is to set a delicate balance. on the one hand he wants to claim the political high ground, i assume, saying that he tried and pushed for historic bipartisan achievement. unfortunately, we will like it there. the reason is that republicans will not sign on to a bold, $1 trillion tax overhaul. so, he wants to show the voters that he is the big negotiator. everything that he said the revlon in 2008. but he does not want to poison the well to make these negotiations for the rest of the week. >> what is the main message coming from republicans going into this meeting? >> it would seem that their main message is probably going to stay the same period that we are for a big deal, but not a big tax increase. or any tax increase. once again they will be challenged to expand on this sharp rhetorical edge. id is a distinction without much of a differenc
of the united states of america. and the craziest part -- >> the u.n. wants to spend a big chunk of that money on things that have nothing to do with climate change in third world countries. stuart varney is here to weigh in on this. so where does this come from? where does the money come from and where would they like to see it go? >> where do you want to start on this one? this shows you how totally out of wack the global warming community is with american public opinion. what the u.n. says is this -- we need $1.9 trillion each and every year for 40 years in order to solve the climate problem worldwide and to reduce poverty and hunger worldwide. so they're bringing in poverty and hunger along with climate change. >> it's not all green. it's poverty, hunger and everything else. >> but you cannot eradicate poverty and hunger without going green because if you don't go green, you increase poverty and hunger. you got it? >> so where is this money expected to come from and how much is coming from the united states? >> ok, we contribute 22% of the united nations budget so theoretically, if this
a big deal. so what is a big deal? white house officials tell me anything over $2 trillion, but he is pushing for more in the area of cuts that would equal $4 trillion over the next 10 to 12 years. now, this all comes against the backdrop of a report today in the "washington post" saying thatm president obama is putting social security on the table along with medicare and medicaid and when we asked the white house about this, they said, look, this is not news. the president has always supported the idea of small cuts in those entitlement programs to make them more effective as long as the cuts didn't impact beneficiaries and having said that some folks on the hill say there are some scenarios which would see a major overhaul of the entitlement programs, but the white house says they would not want to see anything to overhaul the main programs. but one of the sticking points here, thomas, is taxes. democrats want to see a rollback in tax credits for the wealthy americans and in big corporations, and the republicans have said no way, we don't support anything that looks like a tax in
>>> the big story today, money talks. i'm matt milner for dylan ratigan. you'll be shocked. no magic the fix out of today's bipartisan sitdown at the white house. more agreeing to disagree for now. >> nothing is agreed to until everything is agreed to and the parties still far apart on a wide range of issues. everybody acknowledged that there's going to be pain involved politically on all sides. >> still, the president hinting at subtle signs of progress. now pushing to double the size of proposed spending cuts to $4 trillion over ten years. democrat and republican leaders will work through the weekend and meet with president obama again on sunday. areas of potential xpra mize, closing loopholes in the tax code if it doesn't sound like a tax code and changing yearly adjustments for social security. yes, social security is back on the table. though the white house says their only goal, "strengthen the program." keep in mind the august 2nd august debt ceiling deadline is less than four weeks away. mike viqueira is live on the lawn of the white house. what if anything was acco
solution, the big solution which includes tax reform and dealing with entitlements. maybe i am a whistling past the graveyard, but for the first time, i feel a tiny bit of help they can get this done. >> did we hear a suggestion from john boehner this week that a bank might consider an increase in tax revenues? -- that date might consider an increase in tax revenues? >> if you sync social security, not a crazy idea, that is a tax increase -- >>>> it is not a tax increase, it is a reduction in benefits. >> obama has, so far, thrown in the palace. says he wants of the polls close, but that wjla.com -- he says he wants loopholes closed, but that kind of increase does not get you very far. where do you cut? you have to cut everywhere, especially entitlements, especially defense. but you also have to out tax increases. >> has obama at thrown in the towel? >> that is not true. obama, as i understand it, as presented a range of options. the outside one was $4 trillion. the little group decided to drop through the weekend about getting to the big one $4 trillion which would include tax reform, may
at this hour? that is the big question that people want the answer to. the lawyers were successful disguising where she went in the overnight hours. even the press not able to keep up with her. cameras shooting this video of casey anthony walking out of the front doors of the orange county jail at 12:11. wearing pink me low shirt, hair in a bun and the primary defense attorney jose baez right by her side. they got in a motorcade, a gray suburban, a cream colored tahoe and white follow-car and drove directly from the location to a bank of of america building in downtown orlando, not far from here, where her other attorney has an office. they went in covered parking garage and pulled a bait and switch. the suv never emerged from the parking garage, but others cars did and it's not clear which one that casey anthony was in. we can tell you around the same time there was police activity across town at a private airport. a private plane was fuelled up and ready to go on the runway, but nobody saw casey anthony boarding the aircraft. officials telling us it was scheduled to carry golfers vacationin
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
it is that momentous. the flurry of talk last week about going big and swinging for the fences were underscoring the idea of the president and the speaker to persuade the democratic and republican rank- and-file to go for something as big as $4 trillion. it was a long shot to begin with. both sides decided to spend a few days pursuing this long shot and it turns out that speaker behner blinked first. he was the first one to realize publicly that he did not have the votes in his own troops to get this through because it would require too much. host: if the number goes down from $4 trillion, what gets left behind? guest: you go from $4 trillion down to something. the fall back number we think is $2.50 trillion. that is the amount of deficit reduction that would be necessary to get republicans to vote for an equivalent amount of debt ceiling increase. that is what is required to keep the treasury in the flush to get for the next election. that is the number and we know that the vice president had six members of congress and they were pretty close. they were at about $2 trillion. entirely from the s
't happen. >> no. and when the markets do open, it will be a big indication of what happened. the dow jones is down to 86 points, to 12,595. that's come down from the earlier drop of 100 points right at the sound of the opening bell. overnight all of the major asian markets closed down. again, they will reopen again. they are definitely looking towards washington, d.c. to see what happened. the biggest loser, the shanghai composite. australia lost 1.5%. japan finished up. the german market has wandered back into positive territory, a few times within the last few hours. the french and british markets remain down from the closing. now, related in all of this cody traders are taking action. crude oil prices fell below $99 but are now offer -- hovering above that point. some credit agencies are warning that they will drop the u.s. rating from aaa to aa in the next couple of days if the uncertainty continues. one commodity benefiting is gold, gold prices are up $16 so far this morning. record prices there. just about 1600 -- $1,618 an ounce. coming up, we'll have more on whether the debt talks
name kidnap her. that was a big fat lie. warm welcome for soldiers returning home from war. more than 50 national guard troops returned to cedar rapids, iowa, after spending a year in afghanistan. about 2800 men and women will return home to the area in the next few days. this is the largest deployment that the state has seen since world war ii. and those are your headlines. >> let's talk about what's going on. couple of days ago, we heard the president of the united states say don't call my bluff, eric cantor and i'll take my case directly to the american people. today, the president is going to take his case to the american people. he has a press conference this morning at 11:00 a.m. >> we'll see what he says again. there's no talks today, folks. they've been doing them every day this week. there was a rumor maybe they'd go to camp david this weekend but not sure if that's going to happen. no talks today. >> fascinating to see after an hour and 19 minutes yesterday that eric cantor did not say a word today, yesterday, and on thursday. now the president for the second time this week
. they are convincing one another that it is not that big after deal. so right now the white house's big hope and i don't think it is misplace said that if we go to do doom's days on this, the hope is people that get blamed will be the republicans. >> that's option 2. that's default. i've given you two options. >> it's not default if we don't stop sending out the checks. if we keep sending out the checks, it's not default. we didn't default in '95. we just got near to it. >> does the president then say, okay, i'll agree to the republican plan? what's the third option besides default and defeat? how does he force his point of view, which is a reasonable balance, two or three to one, spending cuts to revenue hikes. >> i have no idea. i should say they're talking four or five to one. >> how do we get to there then? >> he can't. on his own we simply cannot. we live in a country, the constitution, the constitution has ultimate power. a lot of people think he could ignore them by asserting constitutional authority, but that is really dependent on the supreme court. >> am i right that it depends on one man, j
? >> what we need to do is the president proposed that we deal with this very big problem in a big way. and that democrats should put all of our sacred cows on the table. we demonstrated that we're willing to put all our sacred cows on the table. the republicans are simply not willing to do anything but sit on their hands and cross their arms like spoiled children, almost. and that's just not responsible. what democrats want to do when it comes to dealing with entitlements is make sure that we don't end medicare as we know it. that we don't cut benefits but we look at medicare and social security in a way that can preserve the long-term solvency of those programs and not propose what the republicans have to end those programs. >> speak of safety nets, the president did say in his interview last night that he could not guarantee that he would continue paying social security benefits if there were a default. this is what michele bachmann had to say about that. >> we were all shocked and appalled that president obama dangeled out in front of the cameras that senior citizens may not get th
a lot. he want as big deal. will he and the president find a compromise? guess who is back? nancy pelosi, your favorite friend, the foam house speaker is back at the table and is in open the debt talks and wants to point the fingers at ... guess who? >> day one of 85 of the republican majority in the congress and we have not seen one jobs bill come to the floor. >>dave: day 185. we expect the republican congress to create jobs in less than a year yet the democrats had four years in control of congress and did what for jobs? >> and the day of fast tush around in the media and all at, quick response from romney about her comments. listen to this. uncertainty is probably the one thing, a heck of a problem. is my company going to be here? it is tough. things have to change. have to change. >>dave: that ad in response to comments early this week, from the senior advisor to president obama who said people will not vote based on the unemployment rate and jobs numbers but based on their situation. well, their situation is the unemployment rate. it is the jobs numbers. that is their reality. so,
between himself and michele bachmann. >> big difference between talking and getting stuff done. and i get stuff done. >> it's the latest chantner the rivalry of the two minnesota candidates for the republican presidential nomination, which boiled over yesterday, with pawlenty having spent almost two weeks saying bachmann has no congressional accomplishments to speak of, bachmann had enough. in a sunday statement, she fired back saying "i've fought against irresponsible spending while governor pawlenty was leading a multimillion dollar budget mess in minnesota." later the bachmann campaign added on healthcare mandates, climate change and wall street bail-outs there's very little daylight between governor pawlenty's record and the obama administration's." this back and forth comes with pawlenty still trailing bachmann in the polls. for bachmann, the verbal sparring seems to come with at least some risk. it will likely draw even more attention to the iowa straw poll, less than three weeks away, and pawlenty seems to have the advantage of a larger, deeper iowa organization. the straw poll bal
is it shows that the united states system is not set up to do big things. when a crisis like this comes up they cannot do a deal that would show stability to the world. >> ronald reagan and tip o'neal made big deals. in the 1990s, bill clinton and the republican congress made big deals. and mika, it's not over yet, but it has gotten to the point already that this is damaging the reputation of the united states the longer it goes, and i think we're talking about it damaging our reputation more every day that the crisis goes on. >> i think both sides would agree with that. after a weekend of meetings resulting in yet another impasse, president obama is canceling two fundraisers today to continue negotiations. senate majority leader harry reid said the talks broke down last night because of the republicans insistence on a short-term deal, and their plan would cut $2.7 trillion over the next ten years. officials say it raises the debt ceiling but no tax increases. and he salaid out his latest solution. >> there will be a two-stage possible. it's not physically possible to do this in one step.
